A safari is an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists in Africa and in the deserts. Wildlife Safari is for the cause of viewing and experiencing life in the wild without any human interventions. In the past, the trip was often a big-game hunt, but today, safaris are often to observe and photograph wildlife. Tourists also do Safaris for sightseeing. The fun of the journey is to traverse through the rugged terrains where you can see wildlife in its natural habitat.
In 1836 William Cornwallis Harris led an expedition purely to observe and record wildlife and landscapes by the expedition’s members. Harris established the safari style of the journey, starting with a not too strenuous rising at first light. He started it for an energetic day walking, an afternoon rest then concluding with a formal dinner. Later he used to tell stories in the evening over drinks and tobacco. The hunting aspect traditionally associated with the safari is said to have its origins in the early 1800s in the region of Évora, Alentejo. Here villagers got together to hunt wild boar and reclaim land for farming.
